Choosing a Neighborhood
Where you live is as important as the house you live in.
Commute: Do I need a quick commute to work? Keep in mind short commutes limit your neighborhood options.
My personality: Do I prefer country, suburban or urban living?
Family: Is a certain school district important to me? Do I need to live near my elderly parents?
Downtime: Do I want to live close to my church or temple or have a short commute to night school?
Future zoning and development: Is the park behind my house going to be developed in the future? Does this small town have plans to build a mega-shopping mall?
Neighborhood age: What will a new neighborhood look like in 10 years? Am I satisfied with an older neighborhood, knowing it may not change much?
Time of day: Does the neighborhood feel the same at night as it does during the day? Is weekend traffic heavier than during the weekday?
Extra costs: Can I afford the county or city taxes or any homeowners' association fees?
Homeowners' Associations: What are the homeowners' association rules? Are they good for protecting home values?
Neighborhood investment: Have the homes in this neighborhood held or increased in value?
I've helped many home buyers organize their neighborhood requirements based on my knowledge of the local area.
